Re: [ADVENTURE] South Sea Tales by Jack London -jo

It is a highly racist tale but, setting that uncomfortable truth aside, the story enlightened me on the prevailing racial attitudes of that time period and locale. Agreed! However, the story is told through the words of the protagonist. I am sure, JL's own views won't be looked at favorably in toda...

Hanna, you are having great ideas!

If you agree to PL a little too, I would love to record a few chapters :D

OK, with your encouragement, I'd like to claim the next 4 sections; i.e., 7-10.
Glad to assign! :9:

I had posted it back on Oct. 6, but my post was easy to miss
Oh, yes, you had, my bad.
I am hoping to PL the entire Jean-Christophe project, though the 10 volumes might take longer than my foreseeable future :|
I am reluctant to read myself because my accent is pretty heavy for fiction.

Sec.6 PL OK :thumbs: Sorry I missed it, and thank you, Joshua, for alerting me, but this section was not announced here in the forum -- that's how I (and some other PLers) get notified! Joshua, I hope you would consider continuing this project. This is a first rate fiction; I am surprised there are ...

Re: [OPEN] DR [Russian] Человек в футляре А.П. Чехова - rap

I haven't been involved in a DR project before, so I'm probably missing something... The instructions are for each reader to make a separate file for every section, and these are grouped in the same row. I understand that we can put the links for multiple recordings the Notes column, but how are we...

That's what the wonderful writers are for; their stories are both touching and not for the faint of heart!

Sec.4, a pleasure to listen adain, and I mark it PL OK! A fully optional suggestion: @8:20 for more authenticity you may stress the last syllable in "PapA, PapA!" My grandchildren live in France, I know what I am talking about :-) But I would fully understand if you don't want to open the cake box j...
